The Skin Society: Eye Treatment Serum

Hello ladies,

For the past six weeks, I have been using Eye Treatment Serum from The Skin Society with noticeable results. The formula contains the botanicals calendula and nymphaea alba flower along with nutritive oils such as borage and flax seed. Eye Treatment Serum performs beautifully as a firming agent. It works effectively to moisturize and smooth over fine lines around the delicate eye area.   
I apply Eye Treatment Serum after cleansing every evening before bedtime. The formula is concentrated, so I discovered I need less product than with most eye creams. The consistency is a cross between a gel and a cream. It absorbs readily, leaving my skin soft with no oily residue. 

The first day after applying this serum, I noticed firming results.  It also does a notable job in reducing puffiness. Fine lines diminished during the first two weeks of regular use. Shortly after I began using this product, my neighbor asked me to recommend an eye cream. I am always pleased when I can see subtle changes that my skin care routine is working. When others notice results and want to try the product themselves, it's even better. 

For those with extra dry skin, the serum can be layered under another moisturizer. I found it functions well on its own. It's good to know layering is an option for colder weather when skin needs extra hydration. 

If you are accustomed to slathering on copious amounts of eye cream, I will advise against this. Putting on too much product caused some temporary eye irritation, a mild stinging that went away after a few minutes. Using a moderate amount of Eye Treatment Serum resulted in a much better experience. In caring for my dry skin, it's fantastic to achieve the perfect moisture levels with a standard amount of product. 

The packaging features an air tight bottle for hygienic dispensing. I appreciate that the cap can be unscrewed to allow for the contents to be used in entirety. I will admit to fishing out one last application of Miracle Lift with a cotton swab. I am certain I will use the same technique when my bottle of Eye Treatment Serum is almost empty.

The skin care glossary provides a helpful breakdown of the ingredients. Many of the components, even those with chemical sounding names, are naturally sourced. 

Ingredients: Distilled Water, Isononyl Isononoanate, Coco-Caprlyate, Squalane, Glycerin, Acrylates Polymer, VP/Polycarbamyl Polyglycol Ester, Hydrolyzed Sesame, Protein PG-Propyl Methylsilanediol, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Butylene Glycol, Escin, Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Centalia Asiastica Extract, Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Brassica Campestris Seed Oil, Schinus Terebinthifolius Seed Extract, Sodium Palmitoyl Proline, Nymphaea Alba Flower Extract, Borage Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Arachidyl Glucoside, Palmitoyl Proline, Retinol Palmitate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinol, Magnesium Palmitoylglutamate, Sodium Palmitoylsarcosinate, L-Alanine, Polyacrylate 13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Dipalmitoyl, Hydroyproline Palmitoyl, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Capryloylhydroxamic Acid, Caprylyl  Glycol, Sodium Phytate, Natural Fragrance.  

Escin is derived from horse chestnut. It helps with circulation and strengthening capillary walls. If you are prone to broken capillaries, escin is a very useful ingredient. 

Nymphaea alba flower, commonly known as white lily, is soothing to sensitive skin and aids in reducing inflammation. It also works as an anti-oxidant to help prevent signs of premature aging. 

Borage oil contains gamma linolenic acid, a fatty acid known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It is rich in the essential fatty acid omega-6. Borage oil is an emollient that replenishes skin's natural moisture. It can help with sensitive skin issues like rosacea and acne.  

Eye Treatment Serum is the perfect choice if you are looking for a product to firm skin and minimize the look of fine lines around the eyes. It definitely gets my recommendation. I have had very positive results with products I have tried from The Skin Society and feel confidence in the quality of the brand.

  1. Even I get antsy when I see chemicals listed as the ingredients disclosed for a product. The last thing I tried,Dermalect Nail Recovery,works mainly with neuropeptides,but when I looked at the ingredient label, I got all spooked by it.Funny that it really is all naturally sourced,but you need a chemist degree to read the label. LOL!

  2. thalie: I know what you mean. I always post ingredients on reviews in case people have allergies or want to examine the contents before purchasing. It can be confusing because components with chemical sounding names can be naturally derived and then ingredients one would expect to be natural (like certain forms of Vitamin E) aren't. I am a big fan of natural based products in general. My cabinets overflow, but The Skin Care Society is a standout.

  3. Thank You so much for the Review on The Skin Society - Eye Treatment Serum! I only heard about their products recently and wondered how well they worked. I'm so glad I found your Review. I now have an idea of how the product works. It sounds like a great product, that I look forward to using in the future. Thanks again! :)
